Jedi sarcophagus or toaster of the future? You decide.

If you've ever wondered what it would be like to have your finely toasted bread emerge from a plastic, egg-like sarcophagus in much the same way as Darth Vader in The Empire Strikes Back, then have we got a toaster for you.

Dubbed the Roastie, and designed by Mateusz Główka of the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków, Poland, the transparent sphere offers what may be the most even toasting a slice of bread has ever seen in modern kitchen appliance history. The designer also claims that due to the heat distribution design, the device actually uses less electricity than a traditional toaster. No plans have been announced to take the futuristic toaster commercial, but given the cool factor involved here, it's just a matter of time.
